TAT help: Need new tires

Hey all.


I'm riding the TAT, and am near the West side of AR right now. I am riding a BMW Sertao, and could do with new tires. The best I could find around Bentonville/Fayetteville are TKC80s, or K60s. Both great tires, but I wanted something more offroad than either of those. I tried some dirt bike places, and they had MX tires, but i need more endurance than those would offer.

Ideally I'd get Dunlop 606s or similar.

Is there anywhere along the route in Northern OK that I might be able to get them?

Thanks

I think there is a shop in Tontiton or siloam springs, both just west of Springdale AR, should be close to where you cross into OK.

whats the name of that shop guys?

ScRazor youve talked about it, so has Tcourdin?

Cycle Gear in Tulsa has D606's or NWA Motorsports in Tontitown and ask for Josh Harper and if he does not have one maybe he can direct you to the nearest place that does

Thanks for the suggestions guys - by the time those got to me (i havent been checking as often as usual) and after calling 5-8 places, I made it to New Mexico, and there's a dealer in Pueblo, just over the border in CO, that has them!

thanks
